    My niece is still rolling the Saturn we bought on here. It's a 2007 Ion 3. The rear bumper is a repro, probably keystone or sortafit, and she ended up power spraying off a good chunk of paint last night at the car wash, so the black plastic is showing thru.
    Who can affordably prep and paint just the whole rear bumper? Doesn't have to be a 5 star job. Just all white with the proper amount of gloss, after the runs and edges are sanded off.
    Preferably located on the west side of the metro.
    Cars in Mustang, owned by a teenager, so budget is the important factor here.

    The Duplicolor products from Oreillys are actually pretty good for a rattle can. You just need the paint code from the decal inside the door jamb

    Yeah, but she doesn't want to pay my hourly rate, and I know she won't help

    If I was a teenager and it was my car, I'd get a couple cans of that flat black Bumper Coating, the stuff that's Avalanche plastic color

    Any body shop should be able to do it, I had some scratches on a bumper and asked one once, they said they'd have to paint the whole bumper and it would probably be a couple of hundred dollars. Even though your area is bigger it shouldn't make much difference, since they have to paint the entire bumper anyway.

    They had a paint scanner at the owasso store. They matched with the paint almost perfectly.

    Make sure you use an 'adhesion promoter' if ya sand & paint it yourself. Makes it a much longer term fix.
